Andres Galarraga Stats

Andres Galarraga was born on Sunday, June 18, 1961, in Caracas, Distrito Capital, Venezuela. Galarraga was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues on August 23, 1985, with the Montreal Expos. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Andres Galarraga baseball stats page.

"Really, at this point I'd rather him (Andres Galarraga) just go up, and if he hits the ball, hit it hard. Just telling a guy to put the ball in play doesn't always mean that much if it isn't hit that hard. I don't care if he pulls the ball four times each game because if he does that, chances are one of them will go very far." - Montreal Expos Manager Tom Runnells (The kind of hitting approach Galarraga should use) in USA Today Baseball Weekly (September 6-12, 1991)
